Recently, librarians Rosa Diaz from the Lincoln Branch of Rochester Public Library and Marcia Thor from the Maplewood Branch of RPL came up with a fantastic new library service.
They brought video cameras out to Fairport Public Library to record the “Babies Love Books” story time which is a program for newborns through 18 months (and their caregivers.)
Rosa and Marcia will be taking the video into the city schools for a program for teen moms on reading with their babies.
We all know how important it is to read to babies, and these librarians have come up with a fun way to spread the idea to young mothers. How cool is that?
This is super cool! What a great way to reach an audience that might not otherwise know what great tools libraries are, especially for new moms.
